Relocating via FaceTime

Jamaal and Stequita.jpg

Jamaal & Stequita were so energetic, fun and we are looking forward to double-dates in their new home that, thanks to technology, we toured via FaceTime!  

It was a journey that took us from the city, to Oak Park, and then back once they realized they wanted to be close to their new Doctor jobs (yes, they are two smart cookies and both doctors!).  We had fun touring several homes when they were in-town, and they just didn't find the perfect home that worked out for them.  So, fast-forward to a couple weeks after where we are offering on this new-construction home (um, do you see that KITCHEN?!) and it offers the space, proximity to the city and the features they wanted!  Plus, they are within walking distance to Kuma's Corner (dangerous...).  

Sometimes you CAN have your cake and "eat it too" and these two also got some of Chicago's finest cake creators on their closing date (Nothing Bundt Cakes, yummmm), which was actually the FIRST time they saw their home with their own eyes.  Fortunately, they loved it just as much as they did via FaceTime and we couldn't be more joyful for this fun-loving couple and their cute pup! 

Only Old Town


Jill was referred to us by a dear friend of ours, and we knew from the get-go she was a woman who knows what she wants!  We quickly narrowed her neighborhoods down, and since she was already familiar with the city, she zoned in on Old Town.  We checked out a few properties that she liked, but when she walked into this property, her eyes lit up and we knew we would be offering soon. 

We landed her this condo for a great price and she plans to put her personal touches on it (paint, etc.) and we can't wait to see it when it's done!  This fun chica now has a new home and it's plenty big for entertaining (see you soon at the house-warming party Jill!).
